It's Monday! What are you reading? Is a wonderful community of readers, teachers, and librarians. Hosted by Jen over at Teach Mentor Texts along with Kellee and Ricki at Unleashing Readers, participants share their reading adventures from the past week along with their reading plans for the week ahead.
My Monday posts are generally just a highlight of what I've been reading during the week so if you'd like to see all that I've been reading, follow my Goodreads page.
I recently interviewed author John David Anderson for his new middle grade book, Riley's Ghost
I recently read and loved:
I Must Betray You by Ruta Sepetys
|As always, Ruta Sepeys' attention to detail and her ability to shine a light on moments in history that so few know about is a special gift. In I Must Betray You, she shines a light on the gruesome communist dictatorship in Romania and its ultimate yet complicated end in 1989.|
Ear Worm! by Jo Knowles, illustrated by Galia Berstein
A young worm has a song stuck in his head, which he learns is called an earworm. As he walks along, he meets some friends who are also experiencing their own earworms. This would be a fun book to read to students to have them discuss what earworms they have experienced and also how they get earworms out of their head.
